Thank you. I was diagnosed with autism at 40 (in the middle of career 1 crashing and burning.) I'm 50 now. If I had information about this condition when I was growing up, life could have been much easier.

The computer takes away the thick walls that seem to separate me from other people when I see them in person. (I would never have spoken this response to you.) I really wish I could make more offline friendships, and I hope more of my online ones will turn into offline friendships given time.

You're never alone and I wish you al the best moving forward.
